Nonsense. NCNC had loyalty from Yorubas because it was always a Yoruba party before it spread to the East. It was formed and led by a Yoruba, Herbert Macaulay, who upon his death handed it over to Azikiwe. The Yorubas following Zik did that as a part of their loyalty to NCNC.
Zik is the most tribalitic leader of them all: he should have partnered with AG to be the PM, rather he preferred to be a ceremonial President/Governor General to the North.
He also wanted to be Premier in the West after installing another Igbo as Premier in the East instead of ensuring he went to the East as Premier and working to install a Yoruba in the West using the same party that he inhreited from them.

Same way Igbos come to Lagos to prosper yet can't stop themselves from hating the indigenes that helped them prosper in their midst, always thinking they are smarter than the people who created the environment that makes them excel. Zik should have realized he was a nobody without Herbert Macaulay and the NCNC he gave him to lead without any nepotism and not attempt to rule those who graciously let him lead the party

Nnamdi Azikiwe was not product of the east.the westerners were his teachers

Now you want us to allow Azikiwe (a man that watch Gowon massacre 3 million fools) to divide the Yorubas just like the ipob pigs.
Zik was made by the Yoruba's.

The Igbo are celebrating him because of his name.

Are you sure you read the history of Nigerians conquest of Biafra

Many Yorubas like Benjamin Adekunle swept away your Joke Biafra Army force

Even, Obasanjo was the one that got your surrender letter after Ojukwu had run away dressed like a prostitute.

Zik that ran away because he was informed about a coup

Ojukwu that ran away after leading 3 million igbos to death only to contest to be the president of a country he wanted to separate from and ironically lost to a Yoruba man with a Fulani vp cheesy

Kanu that boasted but ran away at the sight of a scopion dressed like prostitute just like his mentor Ojukwu. Apparently after leading a group of youth to their early grave. cheesy

You yorubas should stop lying, stop trying to deceive people. If Zik had not partnered with the North, over-ambitious Awolowo the opportunistic yoruba tribalist would have partnered with the North within a blink of an eye and left Zik with the short end of the stick.

Another opportunity came for Awolowo in the build-up to the civil war to partner with the Hausas and he grabbed it with both hands and legs. Very sleazy, cunning man Awolowo was.

Zik was wise to be very wary of him, especially after he (Awo) had written so many anti-Igbo derogatory piece whilst a journalist with Daily times in the 1940s and in his autobiography which was published many years before independence.

Awolowo was a character that every self-preversing and right-thinkng Easterner was supposed to be very wary of. Zik was right to eat with a very long spoon when dinning with Awo. There was no other way, Zik made the right decision given the political dynamics at play at the time. Go and read Awolowo autography published before independence. I have a copy in my office.

You yorubas should stop sounding pedestrian like a broken record, many of you don't have the facts, those of you that do, enjoy hiding the truth.

Why didn't the north partner with awolowo ...no body trusted the man to keep to his word ...that's how bad he was
Saduna hated the igbos but preferred them over awolowo

Stop trying bro twist history ...zik is and would've always be know as a pan Nigerian ..you can never take that away . He was loved by the north more than igbos loved him
To me ZIK was never Igbo...the type of Igbo that you're.

He was raised In the North and West. The west made him who he is.

2023 is around the corner..let the Igbo test their popularity for presidential election with Yoruba. If ur people can

There is nothing like nonsense about it. He, Awolowo, equally threatened the Oba of Benin and Ovie of Urhobo.

I think part of Awolowo's paranoia is traceable to the fact that he hardly knew his father, as a boy he got kicked out by two of his uncles for being stubborn and lacking respect. Awo was not raised in a balanced home. From one home to another, from one school to another.

Right from his days in school he was fighting everyone, infact he changed about 3 different schools before standard 6, due to his sociopathologies, he always needed to constantly prove to every of his peers that he was better than them. He had serious insecurities. It made him more enemies than friends. He envied little things like the better haircut the Ibo and Ghanian students wore in his school.

It's all there in his autobiography which he wrote himself, if you read between the lines in that book, you'll get a clear idea of a youngman trapped in his cocoon by his psycho-social insecurities.

The jackass went further to create confusion on the stratum of Obas in Yoruba land when he appointed Ooni of Ife as the Chairman of House of Chiefs in the western regional assembly. This was due to fracas he had with Alaafin of Oyo. The Alaafin of Oyo never agreed to the Awololo's tribal tendencies in western region. He even formed Omo Egba parapo to oppose the silly Omo Egba Oduduwa. Awo also created the fracas between the Itsekiri and Urhubo. He mastermind the change from Olu of Itsekiri to Olu of Warri hoping to give his alleged kinsmen of Itsekiri the ownership of Warri. Awo never attended secondary school. He grew from the street and motor parks. However, I admired his tenacity to succeed and love for education.
